Times Reference Room Now Permanent Home of Doheny Reference Service
The Los Angeles Times Reference Room in the 1950s. From the USC Digital Library.
After a successful one-year pilot program, face-to-face reference service for USC's Doheny Memorial Library is now permanently located in the first-floor Los Angeles Times Reference Room. Come to the Reference Room during the Doheny Library's regular operating hours to get in-person help from a librarian.
With seating for more than 400 students and shelves for more than 6,000 books, the awe-inspiring Reference Room is the busiest study room in the building. The room also serves as the venue for the annual USC Libraries Scripter Award.
